[On Saturday morning, the gates of the courthouse fly open.

All character will be ushered-- or forcibly dragged, if it comes to that-- the the Courthouse by the various gardeners. The interior of the courthouse is spacious enough for any amount of vigorous discussion, whatever that may be. Who knows what's on the second floor and beyond.

Meng Po sits above the chairs, overseeing everyone below.]

Today, you have all been brought here to find the one who murdered Cagliostro. Once you have come to a decision over who is guilty, you will cast votes on who you believe is the murderer. If the majority votes correctly, the murderer is condemned to Hell, and you will all be one step closer to reincarnation. If they are not found, they will be reincarnated instead, and whoever else is voted in their place as the murderer will be scapegoated. The murderer's sins will be falsely imprinted on them, condemning the scapegoat to Hell.

Should you correctly identify the murderer, there will be a second round of voting: the mercy vote, or the exoneration vote. If you believe the murderer deserves to be reincarnated or the victim deserved to die for any reason, you can vote for exoneration, and the murderer will be reincarnated if the majority votes for it. However, I am not responsible for what happens afterwards to the rest of you.

[...That's... okay, sure.]

Without further ado: the court is in session.

[Do your worst.]

[Okay, he's glad it wasn't just him.]

Our rooms are locked up tight. If you think you're being chased, why the hell would you leave the safest place in the garden and head for the most remote?

[That's, like...that's not even something you have to be taught, that's just obvious self-preservation skills.]

Because it was a trap.

[ going off of what the others have said...neku sounds more annoyed, now. ]

She chose a remote location so she could get away with murdering whoever came out to "save" her.

[Nanashi's expression doesn't really change, but he's been wearing suspicion and irritation since this began.]

Once it was over, she could just pick the notes back up and there wouldn't be a trace of the plan.

[ he's looking more and more annoyed, it seems, the more they uncover. ]

And the person who did this to her was just trying to help her out. Even if the bait might've been obvious.

I still don't feel like taking the fall for them.

[Maybe if you were family? But like. It's been one (1) week. And the stake is souls.]

[ neku tenses up. ]

Right. ...Forgot about that last part she added on.

[ ominous af. ]
